The team has now moved to replace the departees with new faces. Among the new faces is immediate former Gor Mahia midfielder Cersidy Okeyo Lumumba who was released by Gor at the end of the 2018/19 season.
Also in the team is immediate former Mt. Kenya United duo of Timmonah Wanyonyi and Brian Nyakan. Nyakan returns to the club that gave him his top-flight debut while Timonah, formerly with Tusker FC, Gor Mahia and AFC Leopards will be hoping to settle at Batoto Ba Mungu as he has always been on the move for the past few years.

“They are all good players with experience. As you know we lost a number of key players and we have now decided to replace them with equally good players. The four are good players and I strongly believe that they will make us better. We will definitely sign more but we have to ensure that we get the right quality,” Sofapaka coach John Baraza as quoted by Opera News.
